This week my book boyfriend is Reese Spencer from 
All the Pretty Poses by M. Leighton.  
Hot, rich, arrogant, sexy.......definitely a heartbreaker.

Book Description:
He never wanted to be a hero…until she needed him to be.
It took Kennedy Moore years to put her life back together after Reese Spencer shattered it.  But she did.  Now, years later, strong and independent, she is in pursuit of a single dream—to dance with the Altman American Dance Theater.  Unfortunately, Kennedy is learning that a girl from nowhere with no money and no contacts might never be able to realize her goal.  

That is, until Reese reappears, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that Kennedy just can’t pass up.  In exchange for working on his yacht for a few short weeks, he’ll get her an audition with the famous dance troupe.  All Kennedy has to do is keep her head down, work hard and resist Reese.  That sounds easy enough, right?

Reese doesn’t want to make it easy for Kennedy.  Seeing her again has started a fire in his blood—an unwelcome one—so Reese has a plan.  It’s simple:  Get Kennedy on his yacht, seduce her, get her out of his system, move on with his life.  That sounds easy enough, right? 

But the one thing Reese didn’t plan for was Kennedy herself—a girl so strong yet so broken, she makes him want to rescue her, to take care of her.  To save her.  Even if he has to save her from himself.

Links to the book:

 “…As for when you end up in my bed…you can rest assured that it won’t be because you’re doing your job. You’ll be there because you can’t stand not to feel my hands on you. Because you can’t stand not to have my mouth on you.” 

“She trusted me when she couldn’t trust anyone else, gave me the only thing she had to give, and I shit all over it.” 
“I’ve never forgotten you, Kennedy. I’ve never stopped thinking about you, about us. I want you. And you know that. I promise you,” he says, dipping his head to kiss my chin, “that I’ll make you want to come to me.” He flexes his hips as though thrusting into me even though there are clothes between us. “Just don’t fight it too long.”
“I clear my throat, suppressing the sudden urge to thump my chest and then beat the shit out of everyone at the table.”
“The only forever I want is with you. Nothing in my life means more to me than you.  No money, no power, no possessions.  I don’t need any of that.  I only need you.  I. Only. Need. You.” 


  1. I think I need to fan my face after reading those quotes!
